YouTube and Google+ are starting to look a lot more alike, and now, they will play together more too.
The team behind YouTube announced Thursday afternoon that the service's Google+ app has received an update increasing the amount of things that users can do with YouTube videos inside Google+ hangouts.
The update to the Google+ YouTube app will let users put together playlists of YouTube videos within Google+ Hangouts. Previously, users could only go through YouTube videos one at a time within Hangouts.
The first obvious use for this new tool is crowd-sourcing music playlists. Rather than let a computer choose everything you rock out to like on Pandora or having to choose every last song like on Spotify or Grooveshark, with the new Google+ YouTube app update, you could split the responsibility of choosing songs among your group of friends.
